SOLID COLOR BY MATERIAL

Last modified by Niklas Palmgren on 2018/09/27 14:02

SOLIDCOLORBYMATERIAL controls whether the color of elements drawn as solids should be set to the color of the material or the color of the layer, on which the element is drawn ( applies for both solids in model drawings and shop drawings). When the variable is set to:

  • 1 - the color of the material is used.
  • 0 - the color of the layer will be used.

The colors for layers and materials are both set in Standard Admin. 

This variable will be added under Variables in Standard Admin. AutoCAD needs to be refreshed before the change will affect your drawings.
